How To: A Spring Soiree
How To by A Fare Extraordinaire: A Spring Soiree
Whether a bridal shower, engagement party or dinner with friends, spring is a fabulous time to host such a celebration in your own backyard. From fresh blooms in the garden to cooler temperatures before we brave the Texas summer heat, the stage for an elegant spring soiree practically sets itself.
Of course, relying on more than the natural elements to bring together a stunning event design makes for a wise strategy for any “hostess with the mostess!” By combining a dash of creativity and paying close attention to even the smallest details, you will create an event sure to wow your guests and, most importantly, set the backdrop for your loved ones to embrace life’s moments and make memories to last a lifetime.
The first thing to consider when designing an event is the layout. One of the benefits of a springtime event is the opportunity to make use of indoor and outdoor space. To best maximize the space, and create a seamless indoor/outdoor flow, set up the food displays inside the home and focus on the outdoor area for seating and décor. This arrangement will help reduce over-crowding inside, as food and hors d’oeuvres are served, and encourages guests to mix and mingle outdoors.
Create Dashing Displays
Once the layout of the event is determined, it’s time to think about two of the most important aspects of an event: the food and drinks! Of course, delicious food and tasty drinks are requirements for any successful event, but creativity with the set up and displays can really bring your springtime soiree to the next level.
Finish with Florals
Finally, it wouldn’t be a springtime soiree without the addition of flowers and greenery! As seen in the photos throughout, bright pops of florals and greenery accents are a must. From table displays and centerpieces to accents and even accessories, the opportunities to add to spring vibes with florals at your event are endless, but we certainly have some favorite techniques to help narrow down the options.
From space planning and menu preparations to accent pieces and floral arrangements, there are plenty of important aspects to remember to ensure a flawless event. Just remember, with a little creativity, imagination and careful planning you will certainly create an event to remember for you and your guests this spring!
